One very big reason to renew .nz domain names before November starts
If you have any .nz domains to renew or register this year, avoid potential headaches by getting it done before November.
If you have any .nz domains that are due for renewal this year, get it done before November. Then you’ll have your domains locked away before the registry platform - a major piece of infrastructure that underpins the .nz domain space - is replaced.
We’re giving this advice out of caution. Big technology projects are hard, and experience has taught us that after a new system is switched on, you can’t always count on everything working perfectly. By renewing domains now, you will avoid the risk of trying to renew domains while teething issues or unexpecting bugs may be affecting the new platform.
There’s no downside to renewing domains early. The extra year(s) that you secure are added on from the current expiry date.
InternetNZ, the organisation that oversees management of .nz domains, is preparing to go live with the new IRS (InternetNZ Registry System) on Tuesday 1 November.
